Also, look for my stories in the August and September issues of the Alaska Airlines Magazine, and the October and November issues of the Horizon Airlines Magazine.
PDX'S PASSION FOR FOOD, a feature in the June issue of Alaska Beyond, the magazine of Alaska Airlines. (Scroll to p. 70 in the link) What a fun story to research, as I ate my way around town and interviewed terrific chefs like Vitaly Paley (who I surprised by bringing him a jian bing street crepe), Cathy Whims and Gabriel Rucker.
Also researching new stories for Oregon Wine Press, including an account of a recent trip to Walla Walla to attend that town's third annual wine festival. Look for it in the August issue of OWP.
"I don't want to be attractive. I want to be ravishing. I want the women to line up and leap into my arms, stroke my long hair, and ask me things about my pecs. In short, I want to be...Fabio!" -- I'm Ver' Ready, Premiere Magazine, October 1994

"I love this book. The Guru rocks some of the funniest writing ever about videos." -- Eric Estrin, screenwriter and editor of www.moviesmackdown.com, on TRY THIS FOR BETTER SEX
